Minnesota State Parks Vision

  • The Minnesota state park system has an active resource management program to protect, preserve and restore cultural resources and natural areas. These include some of the finest state examples of prairie, northern forest, pinelands and Big Woods found in Minnesota. About 280 species of plants and animals found in 1600 locations in state parks are classified as endangered, threatened or special concern at either the state or federal level. Examples include Henslow’s sparrow, four-toed salamanders, western prairie fringed orchids, Topeka shiner and the dwarf trout lily. Annually, the Division conducts resource management activities to restore wetlands, improve water quality, eradicate invasive plants, and enhance native vegetation and other resources on more than 12,000 acres of state park land.
  • A number of Minnesota’s state parks have guesthouses, cabins and other lodging available for rent. These include: Bear Head Lake, Fort Ridgely, Itasca, St. Croix, Savanna Portage, Scenic, Tettegouche and Wild River state parks. For fee information, call 1-888-MINNDNR or check the the Minnesota State Parks web site at mnstateparks.info.
  • Camper cabins are single room, 12′ x 16′ wood cabins that provide basic shelter for those who want the experience of camping out but may not have a tent or RV. Campers must provide sleeping bags for use on bunk bed mattresses. There is no indoor plumbing, however toilet facilities are located nearby. All cooking must be done outside the cabin. Many cabins have 12′ x 6′ screened porches. Fourteen parks have camper cabins that are winterized for year-round use. Cabins can be reserved a year in advance and rent for $45 a night or $50 a night for cabins with electricity.
  • Minnesota became the second oldest state park system in the country with the establishment of Itasca State Park on April 20, 1891. The next state park added to the system was Interstate State Park on April 25, 1895. The most significant growth years occurred in 1937, 1957, and 1963. In 1937, ten new parks were added across the state. In 1957, five parks were added including four along the North Shore of Lake Superior. The largest number of parks added at one time (11) occurred in 1963.
